Randy and Liz Price, who own Rocky Mountain Restaurant Group, are changing Salsa Brava Fresh Mexican Grill at 9420 Briar Village Point into an Urban Egg, A Daytime Eatery. The last service at Salsa Brava Briargate will be Saturday.

“It was a hard decision,” Randy said. “The Mexican food business has changed since we opened Salsa Brava 14 years ago. We feel this is the correct business decision for our growing company. We’ve wanted to bring a breakfast concept to the Briargate area for several years.”

You still can get your favorite Mexican dishes at two other Salsa Brava eateries: at 802 Village Center Drive in Rockrimmon and 5925 Dublin Blvd.

And you can enjoy the Farewell Fiesta at Salsa Brava Briargate featuring “throwback specials” with past menu favorites, in-store and Instagram give-aways and 12-ounce house margaritas for $5. Find more details about the special offers on Facebook and Instagram.

“We look forward to reopening as Urban Egg in early May and bring the best breakfast option in Colorado to the Briargate area,” Randy said.
